This study guide is designed for using classic film to present universal truths to today’s youth- teaching character, virtue, truth, goodness, and beauty. Viewing and analyzing these celebrated films from Hollywood’s Golden Age inspires our imagination to transcend the group identity politics, and “us vs. them” views that threaten the future of our free society. The seven films in this study guide model the civic virtues that must be practiced by ordinary citizens to heal division and faction in the public square. From Frank Capra’s Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939) to William Wyler’s The Big Country (1958), the civic virtues that sustain a self-governing people are explored. The civic virtues of friendship, moral courage, generosity of spirit, honor, and patriotism come alive in these seven celebrated classic films: Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939) Key Largo (1948) No Way Out (1950) On the Waterfront (1951) Bad Day at Black Rock (1955) 12 Angry Men (1957) The Big Country (1958)
